The Institute of Criminal Law was founded in 1983 as a separate Institute within the Research Unit Criminal Law and Criminology. The lawyers within this Research Unit wanted to meet the existing demand for specialised legal formation in the field of criminal law and procedure. This does not keep them from co-operating with others in interdisciplinary research, however.

The prime research areas are:

  1. Terrorism and Organized Crime
  2. White collar crime
  3. Protection Mechanisms in Criminal Procedure
  4. Sentencing and the Execution of Sanctions

Within each area there is continuous concern for the interplay between national and international (particularly European) norms and policies on the one hand and that between substantive law and procedure on the other.
